I am a police officer and was working a break in. This item was one that was taken. When I returned it, the elderly lady told me to keep the trunk. It is from bloomingdales (see tag). there was an Esso shipping label on it, with no date, but it was shipped to Dallas Texas zone 27. I know the postal service used zones sometime before 1963 but not sure exactly when it was shipped. It was shipped to Texas from Virginia and then brought back as luggage on a train. The trunk is still in it's original condition only missing the lock. According to the owner the key was lost in travel so it needed to removed to get belongings out. I have searched the internet over and over, pretty sure I'm searching wrong but really interested in what it's worth, if anything at all. My wife wants me to get rid of it because it freaks her out and my dog keeps barking at it. I keep telling her know because it may be worth something, hopefully I'm right. If anyone could help that would be great.
